A Long Awaited Peek


So, I know that you guys think I have been holding out on you as far as the new apartment is concerned.  Aaaand, you would be right.  Things have been slow going on the home-front.  Between working and other things, it's been a bit of a struggle to get things "prettified" around here.  I know it ain't much of a glimpse.  But, I promise there is more coming.   Here are the bookshelves in the living room.  I will probably tweak them more as they seem a bit cluttered.  But, I thought it might be nice for you to at least see something as you all have stuck with me, and I am most grateful for that.

If you remember waaaay back here the bookshelves used to be a cream color.  I decided to paint them a light dove grey.  It really "classed" them up.  Here are some other shots of bookshelves that I drew from for inspiration.






What's funny is I've never been a big fan of bookcases.  But, since my new place had them, I needed to learn how to address them.  I used the pics above and several others to learn how to do it, as styling bookcases has never been a strong point of mine.  But, I'm learning, and I'm semi-happy with my first attempt. 

So, with that...hope you all have a wonderful rest of your day.  I will be showing you more of the apartment soon.  Promise.

Nice job!! I'm new here so not sure what they looked like before but am loving what you've done with them. Jealous jealous, how could you not be a 'fan of bookshelves'?? Loving the peek so I'll stick around for more reveals!

Have a great day!

I love the milk glass collection on your book shelves, and the red foo dog adds a pop of color. Nice collection and arrangement.

Looking good girl! I can't wait to see more.
Summer is always a hard time for me to get stuff done, much rather be outside!

Great choice for the color! I'm moving to a new place where i don't have actually space for a bookshelf, and it's sort of freaking me out!

Ashley said...

Great, great, great color choice, and I'm digging the rounded molding at the corner of each shelf.
